Karen was good friends with my Mom (Nancy Linderud) when I was growing up. I will always remember her laugh!!!! :-) My Mom and Karen would literally laugh and laugh for hours! Karen was the best Mom! I remember how caring she was. She was so good to me, my sister and brother and to my Mom as well. Karen, you will be missed!!! Thoughts and prayers for Karen and her children and family!

Most sincere wishes of sympathy to Karen's family. May you find peace in this difficult time.

Mary Hegge on Oct 18, 2011

Your love of life was a soft, radiant beam of sunlight touching us all.
Reminding us to laugh a little bit more...Love deeper, for each day is a blessing.
To have Faith, no matter what, for tomorrow is another day.
Your strength to stand up and fight with your positive attitude has touched us all.
To believe in all of us, yet asking so very little in return.
The long, hard battle for you is over, only tears of happiness and love fill your eyes.
The love you gave us will forever be carried in our hearts.
For Heaven has another angel and we have lost ours.
Go in peace friend.
